Who are Your Best Friends, According to Your Zodiac Sign (Part-1)
Have you ever noticed that all your friends seem to be born around the same time of year? Consider it the universe’s reminder that astrological compatibility isn’t just a matter of romantic attraction: The zodiac signs that make the best friends are basically cosmic soul mates, and there are a few ways you can use your astrological chart to find them.
The easiest method? Look for people who have the same astrological element as you. The signs are coupled into four groups of three called the triplicities, which refer to our temperament: the fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), and water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).
3 zodiac signs that make the best friends for you, according to your sign.
Aries: Aquarius, Leo, and Sagittarius
Fire sign Aries is magnetized to fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and vice versa. Cardinal sign Aries conveys go-getter energy, and, as the first sign of the zodiac wheel, tends to be first to charge into a project. Leo and Sagittarius keep Aries moving and motivated. “The element of fire is linked to action, passion, and enthusiasm,” says Lang. “Fire signs know how to inspire one another.”
Finally, Aquarius knows how to fan Aries embers in just the right way. Aquarius is an activist at heart, and is inspired by Aries ability to jump into action. Likewise, Aries respects that Aquarians are so forward-thinking and progressive; while Aries can be trendsetters, Aquarians already know what’s hot in the future.
Taurus: Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces
Taurus and Pisces have a bond related to their love of feeling. For Taurus, it’s tactile feeling and appreciation of sensations and the delights of the physical world. For Pisces, it’s intuitive feeling and being able to psychically sense the emotions of others. Sensible Taurus is able to give Pisces a major reality check, and Pisces encourages Taurus to dream bigger than ever, making a great balance.
Taurus also feels at home with Capricorn and Virgo. Aside from bonding over their practical nature, Taurus admires her Earth siblings for their work ethic (as a fixed sign, the bull tends to be a bit more slow-moving than ambitious Capricorn and perfectionist Virgo).
Gemini: Libra, Aquarius, and Aries
Air signs are intellectuals, but Gemini and Aquarius are perhaps the brainiest of the zodiac signs, in completely different ways. Gemini is a natural-born researcher who loves expressing their findings, and Aquarius is nutty genius, who considers concepts that go over everyone’s heads. But don’t discount Libra’s role when completing the air-sign clique; Libra loves analyzing both sides of the story critically, and will have great, long debates with Gemini about it.
When Gemini doesn’t feel like talking (rare, but it happens), they’ll find a good ally in Aries. Aries is as quick-acting as Gemini is quick-thinking, and both hate taking things too seriously. Their sense of playfulness keep them close.
Cancer: Scorpio, Pisces, and Taurus
Cancer loves to cook excellent meals, create cozy environments, and cultivate a comfortable little life. Taurus loves to be on the receiving end of those things. The pair can really cuddle up together while everyone else is floating about to enjoy quiet nights in, watching movies and drinking fine wine.
Likewise, Pisces and Scorpio go to Cancer for a cup of tea and a friendly ear. While all of the water signs are deep in their feelings, Cancer has the capacity to be selflessly nurturing and present.
Leo: Sagittarius, Aries, and Libra
Leo reigns as ruler of the fire signs, the Hollywood star of their circle. Aries acts like their best publicist, the Samantha Jones of the group who can make anything happen. Sagittarius is Leo’s counselor, the go-to person for wisdom. Aries and Leo might compete for the spotlight at times, and Sag might get frustrated if Leo doesn’t take their advice, but ultimately, they recognize Leo as their fierce leader, knowing the lion has great capacity for warmth and generosity.
And Libra? Libra pops in from time to time as Leo’s lawyer, ready to fight on their behalf at any point.
Virgo: Capricorn, Taurus, and Cancer
Once again, Cancer is a wonderful match for an Earth sign. When Virgo has spent a hard day working, and overanalyzing and driving themselves up a wall, Cancer can be a tremendous comfort.
And Virgo loves its Earth buddies because they can be extremely grounding force. Taurus can tell Virgo to kick off their shoes and relax, because the work will be there tomorrow. Capricorn can remind them that they’re closer to their goals than they think, and they shouldn’t get hung up on all the details.
